Thank you for all your comments and support yesterday. I’m feeling much more positive today and will continue to record my positive things by taking snap shots of my day, I find this helpful. I like to post these things on Instagram @fightingmyobesity
The positive things I worked on yesterday was my food (and successfully ate well and didn’t binge) and my financial planning.
If you are landing on my blog for the first time then I’m trying to overcome my obesity (at my heaviest I was 350 lbs and I’m now 299 lbs but managed to get down to about 225 lbs several years ago) and to pay off old debt and build a financial emergency fund. I live frugally (always have done) and my interest is life on the home front during WW2 rationing and I love re-creating recipes in my spare time. Finally at 52, as a single person, I’m trying to put everything right….
I think I’ve sapped the strength out of so many people on social media today that I’ll just let this video speak for itself.
Thank you to all who have been there for me today, I appreciated every single comment, they were all very supportive and helpful.
Thank you xxxxxx C
I’ve just come across an excellent playlist on YouTube which includes 72 Wartime Rationing/Home-front/Make do and Mend videos including some more recent videos on the subject of the home-front during WW2.
A wonderful collection of social history snippets!
I had to share with you!
FULL PLAYLIST HERE
It’s finally coming together and on March 1st I aim to have my first high quality full colour ‘Ration Book Recipes’ booklets for sale on my blog.
I’m doing every single bit of it myself which to be honest has been a bit of a dream of mine and there will be a series of them and all very affordable at £5 each. I hope they will compliment the blog and help to pay for it’s upkeep, fund some new equipment for photography or something or some vintage props.
Thought you’d like a sneak peak. I’d really like to use a strap line somewhere that says something like ‘Every meal for under £1’ but I will have to fully price up every recipe from scratch before I can use that!
Anyway – just thought I’d let you guys know and I’ll keep you updated!
